Hello there, this piece of news is good timing for me; Yesterday I was outside working in the perennial garden I am building, and I thought boy those red lily beetles just eat my lilies at an alarming rate. So I thought about using an insecticide, but I thought if I do the bees will be collecting these chemicals and now I read the Brazilian Amazon is so badly affected by various chemicals. I would like to have a petition of some sort to sign. Thank You for this information, I'll be insecticide-free this season because of some of the news I read at Care2.
